THIS ISN'T HEAVEN (Richard Rodgers (m & l) ) Lyrics as sung by Bobby Darin (original soundtrack State Fair 1962) This isn't heaven, who needs it This is the earth and you You're not an angel, who wants one You in the flesh will do. You're so real, I'm reelin' Who called you divine Watch me walk across the ceilin' Shoutin' you're mine, you're mine. This isn't heaven, so what You're not an angel, no you're not You're mine, you're mine, you're mine. (short bridge) You're so real, I'm reelin' Who called you divine Watch me walk across the ceilin' Shoutin' you're mine, you're mine. (bridge) This isn't heaven, so what You're not an angel, no you're not You're...mmm Notes: Richard Rodgers wrote additional music (this selection and others) for the 1962 version of State Fair, after his long time partner Oscar Hammerstein II died in 1960. The musical State Fair was adapted from a Philip Stong novel of the same name. A number of film versions were created, initially in 1933, then 1945 and 1962. Later in 1976, a made for TV movie appeared. State Fair was finally adapted for a Broadway musical in 1996. State Fair was the only Rodgers and Hammerstein musical ever written directly for film. State Fair 1945 Director: Walter Lang Leads: Jeanne Crain / Dana Andrews / Dick Haymes / Vivian Blaine State Fair 1962 Director: José Ferrer Leads: Pat Boone / Bobby Darin / Ann-Margret / Tom Ewell The original State Fair production in 1933 was directed by Henry King and starred Will Rogers and Janet Gaynor along with Lew Ayres. It was well received at the time. The 1962 musical (from which these lyrics derive) was deemed by many to be unsuccessful in almost all respects in North America. At the same time, Faye's huge fan base in England pushed this State Fair film and her immense popularity to record heights. (Transcribed by David Story- April 2014)
